Nudgee Beach Plein-Air Drawing 27.07.15

A perfect day out at Nudgee Beach plein -airing with friend Chris. It was just one of those days perfect weather, sun, breeze. The  midgees and mosquitoes even laid off until later in the day.

I found myself increasingly fascinated by the rhythm of the landscape. The stands of mangroves and always the lines! .  For some of the black ink works I used a Pandanus Palm nut (totally delicious to use) that had a fibrous worn out end, a mangrove seed pod, and beach charcoal. Increasingly in my thoughts is the notion of the fragility of the landscape and its ecosystems especially in areas of high human impact.
At the end of our day, sadly it was too easy to collect 2 bags of plastic bags and debris rubbish, as a thank you to this lovely peaceful location.
